Finance term: Macaroni Defence

08 Jun


An approach taken by a company that does not want to be taken over. The company issues a large number of bonds with the condition they must be redeemed at a high price if the company is taken over.

It is called macaroni defence because  if a company is in danger, the  redemption price of the bonds expands like Macaroni in a pot!
